Missouri as the state of Jefferson

Fascinating early map of the United States, which names the present state of Missouri as Jefferson.

The outline color clearly delineates Missouri, as formed in 1821.

Other features include a 54-40 or fight boundary in Oregon Territory, which is called Columbia and the appearance of many Indian Tribes.

One of the very few maps to name the state of Jefferson.

Aristide Michel Perrot Biography

Perrot was an engineer and mapmaker.

In 1834, Perrot and French artist, zoologist and entomologist Émile Blanchard Nouveau Manuel complet du coloriste, ou Instruction simplifiée et élémentaire pour l'enluminure, le lavis et la retouche des gravures, images, lithographies, planches d'histoire naturelle, cartes géographiques, peinture orientale, plans topographiques, contenant la description des instruments et ustensiles propres au coloriste, la composition, les qualités, le mélange et l'emploi des couleurs et les différents travaux d'enluminure. This work, published in the compact format of Librairie Encyclopédique Roret of Paris, appears to be directed toward people in charge of print and map coloring studios as well as professional colorists, since the content of the work is relatively technical, generally involving the mixing of colors, and the determination of precisely which color to use in coloring specific prints and maps and book illustrations.
